Why choose a garage door professional?
Your home is a large financial investment, and when things go wrong you want to make the best decision you can when deciding to repair or replace something. Choosing the right garage door professional is critical to ensuring longevity of your overhead door. If you are having issues with your garage door, it is important to see this as an opportunity to take care of your investment. When deciding whether to repair or replace a malfunctioning garage door there are many factors to take into consideration.
Is your garage door new-ish?
If your current garage door is newer, you should probably opt for a garage door repair rather than replacement. Even if the cost of repair seems expensive, it is probably cheaper than replacement. If not, check the warranty on your current door. Any repairs to a newer garage door should be covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.
Is your garage door attractive?
Curb appeal matters. If you already have an attractive garage door, the cost of repair is much preferable to keep the curb appeal from the attractive door. If you are not in your forever home and you are looking to sell your house down the road, garage doors can be a good investment. On average, studies have found that you can get between 92% and 112% return on your investment when replacing an ugly, outdated garage door with a more attractive door that fits with the architecture of the house or offers something aesthetically interesting. If your garage door is in need of repair but isn’t adding anything to the curb appeal of the house, perhaps you should think about replacement instead.
Is your garage door energy-efficient?
In this climate, it is important that garage doors provide the right amount of insulation for your home. Protecting your belongings and keeping your energy bills down is top priority for most families. Given the possibility of harsh weather conditions such as humidity, snow and rain, a properly insulated garage door can protect your home and everything inside it. If you feel comfortable with your current amount of insulation and weather-protection, garage door repair is the way to go. If your current garage door is not as energy-efficient as it could be, replacement might be preferable to repair.
